Despite the fact that the federal government has frozen student loan payments for most borrowers, and stopped interest from accumulating on these loans, the prospect of debt bills coming due is a painstaking reality that is on the forefront of millions of people’s minds. …
As of this writing, the 2020 presidential election is still too close to call, with several battleground states still tabulating results, especially from the wave of mail-in ballots received this year due to the pandemic.
Here is what we do know: the results will be close either way.
How is this possible, though? After all, Trump is inherently reviled by a huge swath of the country, with many conservative voters jumping ship to Biden because they couldn’t stand the thought of a second Trump term, even if that meant a victory for the Democrats. …
My mail-in ballot has been sitting on my desk for over a month now, collecting dust as I wrestle with a difficult decision: should I succumb to the establishment threatening me with another four years of Trump by voting for Joe Biden, or should I vote my conscience and cast my ballot for Howie Hawkins, the 2020 Green Party candidate?
After much debate, I have made my decision.
I will support Hawkins at the ballot box.
Since Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd last week, Minneapolis and St. Paul have been in upheaval. While outside domestic right-wing terrorists have been busy burning down numerous buildings, likely including the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct headquarters, police officers have been disproportionately responding to peaceful protesters with violent force, attacking them with tear gas and rubber bullets.
This is a trend that we’ve been seeing all across the United States, where dozens of major protests have broken out demanding police reform and accountability, and while Chauvin was recently arrested, there is still a long way to go…
As the presumptive Democratic nominee, Biden has been attempting to stay out of the media spotlight, probably on behest of cautious campaign advisors who know that the guy is a walking gaffe magnet who says something dumb every time he opens his mouth.
Well, they weren’t wrong.
During an interview with The Breakfast Club yesterday, Joe Biden got into a heated conversation with Charlamagne Tha God, the host of the program, on a number of issues relating to race. …
The scandal that continues rocking the Biden campaign involves the credible allegation made by Tara Reade, a former staffer in Biden’s Senate office, that he sexually assaulted her in 1993. Since the news broke a few months ago, four individuals have come forward to corroborate the story, and two more pieces of evidence were unearthed that add validity to the claim: Reade’s late mother’s CNN appearance shortly after the assault and the court records that document Tara’s ex-spouse discussing harassment in Biden’s office.
Powerful men have, traditionally, been able to get away with committing atrocious acts without being questioned or investigated, let alone punished. While a small sliver of powerful men are finally living with the consequences of their actions, most notably Harvey Weinstein, many guilty men are still out there, enjoying freedom from scrutiny.
As the American people are confronted, yet again, with two utterly disgusting choices between the Democratic and Republican parties leading up to the November general election, many of us are deciding to take the bold move and explore supporting a third-party presidential candidate. Many progressives in particular, who cannot fathom voting for the “lesser of two rapists”, have taken an interest in the Green Party presidential nominations process to determine who will become the standard-bearer for the progressive party heading into the presidential election.
It seems like only yesterday that Bernie Sanders, who had strong showings in the Iowa caucus, New Hampshire primary, and the Nevada caucus, was poised to finally take the Democratic Party in a progressive direction and become the party’s nominee. Unfortunately, though, the Democratic Party establishment reared its ugly head, coalescing around Joe Biden in order to prevent Sanders from threatening their political power.
As I have thoroughly documented, Joe Biden is a terrible politician who should be no where near the Oval Office. His record on pretty much every major issue has been a major disappointment, and his neo-liberal…
A few days after it was confirmed that Tara Reade’s mother called in to Larry King’s CNN show in 1993 to ask for advice regarding the problems that her daughter was experiencing with her boss, Senator Joe Biden, two individuals have come forward to corroborate Reade’s story that she was sexually assaulted by the presumptive Democratic nominee.
The first new witness is Reade’s former neighbor, Lynda LaCasse, who lived next door to her in the 1990s. Below are snippets of what she told Business Insider:
“I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she…
